Classic Team Logo of The Day

21 Oct

This is an old, outdated logo of a college football team that plays in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Syracuse Orangemen. Known as the “Saltine Warrior”, the Native American character was used beginning in 1968, but was jettisoned in 1979 when a group of Native students protested the cartoon-like depicture of their culture. The Orangemen won the national championship in 1959 and boasts one Heisman Trophy winner, the late Ernie Davis. The school has a long list of alumni who have gone on to pro careers, including 8 Hall of Famers – Jim Brown, Al Davis, John Mackey, Jim Ringo, Larry Csonka, Art Monk, Marvin Harrison and Floyd Little.
